Greenslate Farm


Greenslate Farm is a community project begun by Billinge and Orrell Transition Group in 2012. During the week the farm hosts people with special needs undertaking a full range of farm and growing activities, as well as school groups, play groups and team building events. The site covers over 17 acres and encompasses vegetable growing fields, private allotments, a small shop, polytunnels and a greennhouse, a tipi, over 10 acres of woodland, a pond, and various garden areas. It is also home to chickens, pigs, goats and horses, all of which play a part in the food production process. The aim of the farm is to raise awareness about the importance of local, organically grown and ethically reared food, and to promote sustainability and community enterprise.
